A dark golden colour. This beer has a gentle sweetness with a nutty character and low hop flavours.

Oakes (15635) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Clear molasses colour. Aroma shows toffee, earthy, slight soy sauce (not enough to bother me, thankfully), and chocolate marzipan. Body is quite sweet, but with a pronounced toffee development, light caramel, and finishes slightly tart. That finish gives it that Jacksonesque "moreish" quality to what is otherwise a nursing beer. While straightforward, this also possesses significant depth of character.

Mild and fresh use of Roast and nuts. Alcohol under 5%, a brown something between an American or British. Roast in aroma. Lace in dark brown appearance. Coffee mid-sip. Not overally hopped, but balance, and a moderate complexity.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Re-Rate New sample seems less roasty, and more well balanced. Lots of pleasant malt. Basically the same flavours as last time but I enjoyed it a lot more. 7/3/6/3/15 Original Rating Slightly reddish-brown body with a mocha beige head. Flavour is nicely malty but the notes of roasty mocha with some coffee like bitterness were distracting for me personally because they are not flavours I am fond of. (A coffee drinker I am definitely not.) Pleasant mouthfeel. 7/3/6/3/13

[1557-20080801] Tap. Roasted mocha bread aroma. Clear, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Flavour has a little sour roast and some coffee hints. Medium-full body. Not very monkey-ish but nice and mild.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 3, 2005
Clear, light brown, dense small head. Light roasted aroma mix with sweeter malts. Clean, mature ale. Lasing flavors, decent finish. Technically best of Pepperwood.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Clear dark warm brown with no lace. Malty aroma yields subtle berries. Soft carbonation. Real roasty chocolate malts in a clean and solid body. Sessionable.

GregClow (3187) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2003
Nice ruby-brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of nuts and coffee with a hint of chocolate. Robust body, and a toasty flavour of chocolate and coffee. Very porterish, and very good.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2003
Malty/hop aroma, auburn with a slim toffee head. Roasted malt, chocolate, toast and coffee flavours. Well balanced, smooth. A really good Brown Ale!

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
At the brewpub. Dark brown, still head. Nice roasty aroma. Good malty, roasty taste. Easily the most flavourful beer I had there, a great brown ale and one I would session frequently if local.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2011
Probably the lightest tasting brown ale I have ever had. It was not very thick and it was a clear brown colour, minimal darkness to it. small notes of dark malts, light chocolate flavour. Overall not too interesting
